What we do

Protecting the world's
most vulnerable children

For 70 years, we’ve been bringing children hope and better futures.  
Inspired by our Christian faith, we help children of all backgrounds living in the world’s most dangerous places. 
Together, we've impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children, by tackling the root causes of poverty.

Conflict, war and natural disasters leave children facing hunger, insecurity and violence. When they happen, we respond with immediate relief – and we stay for the long term, helping to rebuild lives.

Where we work



Who are the most vulnerable?

Children living in the world's most dangerous places and most at risk of poverty, exploitation and abuse.  And in places where conflict, famine and political instability are persistent, children are inevitably at greater risk.
